Marine Life in Maldives
 
“A treasure trove of marine life” is perhaps the best way to describe Maldives . The abundance of various species of fishes and beautiful aquatic plants has made Maldives one of the best diving destinations of the world.

Maldives is believed to be based on an underwater mountain range, rising from its depths. This mountain range acts as a base for the coral reefs surrounding each island of Maldives . Coral reefs of about 70 different species and in almost every colour decorate the waters surrounding these islands.

Over 700 species of ‘fishes' have found their home among the reefs here. An important role is played by the water currents in the gathering of the big fish species. Some of the interesting fish species found here are Trevally's, Dogtooth Tuna, Tuna, Jacks, Sweetlips, Butterfly fish, Wahoo and Fusiliers. Mating octopus and an occasional giant Napoleon wrasse are some of the other interesting sights.
Large pelagic or fishes that live in open water are found in the lagoons where the tides, moves in and out huge amounts of water. Sharks, turtles, anemones, schools of sweetlips, eels, octopus and rays abound in the waters of the Indian Ocean . In the late summer and during the fall, you can also see mantas and whale sharks which are a very impressive and interesting sight.

The marine life in Maldives can be described as a city underwater with the aquatic plants and coral reefs decorating the place and providing home for schools of fish, sharks and other types of marine life.
